. wade overturned many federal and state restrictions on a woman's right to an abortion. you have to be of a certain age to remember how, before abortion became legal, a woman could be tormented by an unwanted pregnancy that she was forced to carry to term by the police powers of the state. in that dark age leading up to the court's decision, america's most trusted news man, walter cronkite of cbs, tried to make sense of the debate and the danger. >> the illegal termination of pregnancy has reached epidemic proportions in this country. the laws which govern abortion are broken an estimated 1 million times a year, 3,000 times a day, for various medical, social, and economic reasons the laws do not recognize as valid. the conflict between the law and reality has resulted in a national dilemma. only recently have our abortion laws been openly questioned, has a dialogue begun among doctors, lawyers, and clergymen. >> the law's against you, your colleagues are against you, and it makes a very unhappy feeling. you hate to be a doctor under these conditions. this is simply puritanical pu

v. wade should be the law of the land. what is the republican agenda? to try to overturn roe v. wade and take those rights away from women. we know the majority of americans support a path to citizenship. what is the republican agenda? a fake path to citizenship. point being, it is their policies. i will say quickly that after the 2004 election when democrats got beat and we kind of went back and said what is going on here, we did some real polling, and we found that americans actually agreed with us on our values. >> sure. >> but it was how we were communicating. republicans can't say that americans don't agree with them on their positions. >> just today john boehner released a video for the march for life. let's take a look at it. >> with all that is at stake, it's becoming more and more important for us to share the truth with our young people and to encourage them to lock arms, speak out for life, and help make abortion a relic of the past. let that be one of our most fundamental goals this year. >> didn't the republicans already lose that fight, eugene? how is anything going to
deal with that? >> hal: you know, before roe v. wade and before it was a protected right in this country a lot of women handled this quite frankly like patrick swayze's dance partner in dirty dancing. through a shady doctor or no doctor at all. >> caller: but they did it on the kitchen table. >> hal: exactly. or well people who could pretend they didn't have to do these kind of things would send their daughter to visit a cousin and she would come back without the child anymore. >> caller: there's one clinic in each of these four states and some women have to drive five hours. they have to wait 72 hours and drive back. it is disgusting. >> hal: absolutely. >> caller: i love you guys. >> love you too, dana. thanks for coming on saturday. >> hal: you know, that's been the drip, drip of legislaturewise across this country. and unfortunately, we were talking a lot about this about the fact that the focal point was on the president because of the inauguration and this idea that you know, he's our primary representative. i was not comfortable -- i'm never using the word leader b
to commemorate the 40th anniversary of row v. wade, the landmark supreme court decision that formally recognized the woman's right regarding decisions on her reproductive health care. this came as a result of decades of relentless activism and litigation on the part of great women advocates. but today there are those that want to roll back those fundamental rights and turn back the clock on women's health care. we've seen them use the same tactics over and over again during the last 40 years. in fact, according to an institute, more than 40 laws were passed to restrict access to abortion in 19 states just this past year. that's why as we commemorate the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade, it's more important than ever to commit ourselves to protecting these basic rights and ensure that women across our country have full control over their personal well-being and health and retain access to health care they require. thank you and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from california seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address th
